Fund description:

Independent Age, a charity that supports older people, is making £2 million available to help smaller organisations across the UK working with older people hardest hit by coronavirus. There will be four separate funding rounds: in each round there will be £500,000 available where organisations can apply to receive up to £15,000 each.

The fund will prioritise activities to support:

  • older people living in particularly complex and challenging situations
  • older people in danger of being out of site and out of mind

Registered charities that are providing services for older people can apply. They must have at least one paid member of staff (part-time is fine) and an annual income of £1 million or less.

Applicants must know what they want to do – or do better – to help make an immediate difference to the lives of vulnerable older people over the next six months.
